THE DATA YOU NEED SAFELY ACQUIRED

BIRDSiVIDEO was one of the first businesses of our kind to receive FAA exemption for commercial use of UAVs in April 2015. Since then, we’ve worked tirelessly to provide an established network of vetted and trained operators throughout the US with specialities in infrastructure, energy, and agricultural services.

UAV inspection is faster, safer, and more efficient than traditional means of facade inspection. We see the largest beneficiaries of UAV services to be the industries that require up-to-date, high-quality inspections that are traditionally high risk, inefficient or costly.

That’s where we see a significant real estate advantage. BIRDSiVIDEO offers comprehensive end-to-end solutions to our clients to improve the thermographic scanning process of building envelopes by making building inspections more efficient, less risky, and less costly.

FLIGHT CAPTURING

The first step to any UAV operation is the initial flight. We offer a nationwide network of franchise and affiliate pilots, fully vetted, insured, and licensed.

DATA ANALYZATION

The data we collect provides the basis of our survey and analysis reports, which is complied and analyzed by a professional thermographer.

NIGHTTIME FLIGHT FAA WAIVER

BIRDSiVIDEO is one of the few drone operators in the US to hold a nationwide nighttime flight waiver. No commercial UAV pilot can operate after sunset without such a waiver.

OUR SERVICES

We help our clients in real estate prevent energy loss, comply with regulations, and integrate efficient solutions all while significantly reducing the risk and the cost of your inspections.

While TPO roofing systems (and other smooth surface roofs) are among the fastest growing commercial roofing systems, they present significant thermal scanning challenges for traditional “on foot” imaging. Due to the reflectivity of the material, thermal images must be captured at a 90 degree (nadir) angle.

UAV aerial scans eliminate this obstacle – the camera can adjust to a 90 degree nadir position no matter the angle, so we can efficiently fly hundred of thousands of sq ft in a single deployment. 

The data we collect provides the basis of the survey and analysis report our professional thermographers create.

This includes but is not limited to the following:

  • Dates, times, and environmental conditions at time of flights.
  • Daytime visual imagery, thermal imagery, CAD drawings and CAD overlay.
  • CAD drawing of roofs with potential problem areas marked.
  • Highlighted areas of concern.
  • Area measurements of problem spots and percentages of the entire roof effected.

Data capture consists of two separate flights:

The first is a daytime optical inspection with high resolution geotiff mapping.

The second is a nighttime thermal inspection.

We use the data from both flights to develop a comprehensive report that shows you exactly how and where you’re experiencing any problems.

Our facade surveys provide the following:

  • High-rise elevation images not accessible from the ground.
  • Air leakage through building envelopes.
  • Satisfactory LEED requirements.
  • Non-intrusive building evaluation and inspection.
  • Efficient assessment of the building’s overall energy performance.
  • Post build verification of efficiency improvements.

By utilizing survey grade reference points (GCP’s), we can efficiently and accurately map land or structures for analysis.

Some of our deliverables include:

  • 2D files in .tif or .kml formats
  • Digital surface models
  • 3D models and files (point cloud)
  • GIS and AutoCAD Compatible (in addition to other platforms)
  • Exporting true orthomosaics

We strongly believe that the data acquired using UAV technology is only as good as the quick and precise actions our clients can take with that information.

That’s where we differentiate ourselves from other drone competitors.

Our Real Estate pilots utilize UAV’s with optical and thermal sensors, Flir 640 X 512 sensors, autopilot functionality, and more to deliver the most accurate data possible.

EVOLVING YOUR INDUSTRY

BETTER INSPECTIONS, BETTER SAVINGS

BIRDSiVIDEO delivers the technical expertise and professional experiences necessary to produce the content you need the moment you need it.
  • Estimates show that an “on-roof crew” can only survey 25k to 100k sq ft of roof in one night with traditional methods.
  • Best case scenario: 5 days of deployment.
  • Considerations:
    • Multiple mobilization costs.
    • Roof access challenges and issues.
    • Changing weather conditions means potential delays.
    • Smooth roofs may not be scanned accurately due to reflectivity.
    • Risk levels of falling off a roof (especially at night) factor into costs.
  • A BIRDSiVIDEO pilot can scan up to 1 million sq ft in one night.
  • Time for 500k sq ft roof scan takes around one 1 day/night.
  • Efficiency is increased via aerial digital markers on a roof when needed.
  • Smooth surface commercial roofs can be efficienctly flown with a UAV due to the ability to take nadir photos easily.
  • Best case scenario: Less than a day of deployment.
  • Risk level is virtually none, since no employee needs to set foot on a roof.

HIGH DEFINITION IMAGERY

Using advanced machine learning for intelligent image analysis, our software generates powerful on-demand insights about roof damage starting with on high definition photography.

THERMOGRAPHY

Our licensed thermographers evaluate a nighttime flight of your roof using advanced thermographic cameras equipped to our speciality UAVs.

CAD OVERLAY

Our damage mapping algorithms leverage state-of-the-art cloud computing power to overlay our HD imagery with our thermography to show you precisely where your roof is damaged the most.
